Hi I’d like to know how long it usually takes for a teacher to complete a ucas reference, how long did it take anyone personally? Will the date now effect how long they will take to get it done? Thank you

Ugh I’m sorry😭I know how that feels! Just try to ask someone else as quickly as possible, ucas told me we can still apply after but our application won’t be 100% considered, good luck

I have asked other teachers and they have said the same thing. I think there is some political gamesmanship being played by the lecturers versus the college administration due to workload. Sadly as a pawn in the system, we as students are expendable. I might add that I'm an HNC student and not an A-level student so I'm actually paying for my course from my own pocket. I will try and contact the universities that I have applied for and see what they say. In theory, my previous level 3 is enough and my level 4 qualification might even allow me to attend directly into the second year.

I'm just very disappointed in the whole process.
